Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4 on Xbox 360 has quickly moved into second placed in the Xbox 360 Top Live Titles top ten, according to stats on Major Nelson's blog.

It means the FPS is biting at Halo 3's heels, which currently holds top position in the rundown. And it's sitting above Gears of War, which is now residing at number three.
